We overhauled this crumbling old garden patio by installing a bigger, better paved area

When we first laid eyes on this jaded back garden in Oxford, we could see why the homeowners were so keen on a revamp! They approached us asking for a simple, but comprehensive, transformation of the whole area. This involved removing the entire concrete surface and putting in a brand new patio from our contemporary pavestone range.

The homeowners visited our local lanscaping supplies showroom in Oxford, where they picked out the perfect paving slabs for their new project: Pavestone Tudor Antique Oxford. Hand crafted, this popular natural stone paving boasts a smooth, time-worn appearance in mix of brown, grey and beige shades in four sizes: 900x600mm, 600x600mm, 600x300mm and 300x300mm.

After removing and disposing of the old concrete slabs, our installation team dug approximately 6 inches below the finished patio level to create a new base. We then laid the slabs in a random pattern on top of a full bed of mortar, resulting in an attractive look that blends the different shades and colours in a creative way.

We were also faced with the challenge of a sloping garden, declining toward the house. To prevent a build-up of surface water, we installed a series of rainwater channels in the shape of Aco Drainage Channels against the rear of the house. These channels connect to the existing soakaway system, which we concealed beneath the sandstone paving.
